Another day, another awesome Verdant beer. Hot on the heels of my review of Putty, their amazing DIPA, comes High Level Kink.
A pale ale at 4.8% this beer is definitely more towards the 'session' end of the spectrum but thankfully still comes in a large 440ml can.
In the glass it has a hazy appearance and a dull orange colour with no discernible head. In looks it is very reminiscent of a grapefruit juice and this is echoed in the nose, where sharp citrus bitterness blends nicely with sticky pine.
It is light bodied with a reasonable amount of carbonation.
The grapefruit from the nose follows through strongly into the taste and that sticky resinous pine really hits home too. The finish is then citrus bitterness, leaving your taste buds ready and waiting for more.
High Level Kink isn't as jaw droppingly mind blowing as Putty, but it is a superb sessionable pale ale. If you give me fridge stocked full of cans of this I'd be a happy man!
